Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1780400A1] To provide a fuel pump mounting structural body that allows a mounting space for a fuel tank and the number of manufacturing processes to be reduced. A base (7) having a step portion (50) fitted with a lid portion (13) of a fuel pump unit (10) is welded to an opening portion (6) disposed on an upper member (2) of a fuel tank. An upper surface of the base (7), a guide member (8) formed to include a gap (18), in which a retainer (20) is inserted, is joined at a spot weld (17). An O-ring (16) is fitted in the step portion (50) and then a portion of the fuel pump unit (10) from a strainer (12) to a main body portion (11) is accommodated in the fuel tank. When a bottom portion of the lid portion (13) is then engaged with the step portion (50), the O-ring (16) exhibits a predetermined sealing effect. When the retainer (20) is inserted in the gap (18) in this condition, a leading end portion of the retainer (20) slides over to press an upper surface of the lid portion (13) to advance into the gap (18) on a side opposite to the inserting direction. The fuel pump unit (10) is then maintained in a hermetically sealed, secured state as long as the retainer (20) is not pulled out.
